VNC Board Extra Meeting April 7

The Venice Neighborhood Council has never sent out an email with this many links in it before! Everyone is encouraged to attend this meeting! (When the City Attorney releases the revised draft of 85.11 it will be posted!)

VNC 500

From the Venice Neighborhood Council:

The Venice Neighborhood Council board will hear a presentation on revisions to a proposed LA City ordinance (LAMC 85.11 – click here to read the ordinance as originally written by the LA City Attorney) required for implementation of the “Roadmap to Housing Program” (a program designed to help people living in their vehicles get into permanent housing). Mike Bonin, Chief of Staff to Councilman Bill Rosendahl, will make the presentation on Thursday, April 7th, starting at 7PM in the meeting room of the Oakwood Recreation Center, 767 California Avenue.

The revised text of the proposed ordinance (to be released Monday or Tuesday and posted on the VNC website at www.VeniceNC.org as soon as received) is designed to incorporate changes that Councilman Rosendahl has advocated. To review the Councilman’s proposed changes and learn more about the Roadmap to Homes Program, click here.

The changed text also comes after suggestions made at a previous meeting of the VNC Board and Venice stakeholders on March 22nd. Following the presentation, the Board will listen to public comment, discuss the proposed ordinance and consider possible action to approve, approve with conditions or disapprove the ordinance.
